That’s the way this will go.
I believe that Jesus is the Lord and Saviour of my soul. My eternal life. Everything that I will ever have, be, do, is all because of Jesus.
God is the One that picked Jesus. I don’t know why. Probably if He had picked me, y’all would have been on your own.
You would have lost me when I knew it was coming time for me to be your sacrificial lamb. I went to pray and ask God to take this from me. And y’all were sleeping when I get back. All Jesus asked was that we stay awake, and praying wouldn’t hurt :) I’d have lost my patience with the whole thing. Looking at how we had performed until then, yep, y’all would have been on your own.
Not very nice or kind of me, is it? :) Sad but true. God is helping me with my brotherly love, and patience issues.
Thank goodness we have Jesus. He is the one that was ready to jump on that cross for us. He is the one who would have given everything for every one of us :) I love Jesus. Praise the Lord and His Father who sent Him.
One day though, the Word says that we will stand in judgment for our deeds. Shew, wouldn’t want to be in line behind me :) Not taking it lightly but when I see those verses, and feel the meaning I will be there a while.
There are the debates about, we are forgiven, Amen! Whe are heirs, we are clean. Praise God, I believe! BUT there is a difference between being forgiven and giving account of ummmm I don’t know…..everything.
Everything we have said, thought, done, didn’t do. The fear of God fills me when I think of the list.
Does it you?
All I can think of is when I was a child and had done something wrong. It was inevitable. I had to confess it to my parent(s) That was the worst feeling in the world. The fear of the LORD fills me when I think that day is coming with Him and me :)
We are forgiven but everything single thing we do we have to account for. It is not free. It was paid for with a price, our Lord Christ Jesus. Our actions have a price. Jesus paid it.
What is our payment plan?
